Stella Pace’s concern is humanity: humanity grappling with the difficulties of reality, humanity torn apart by insane suffering. It is a somber and tragic topic that of genocide, a topic that haunts the artist since she saw images of the massacre in Rwanda. The material used for the bodies of the women, cement and straw, underline both the strength and the fragility of human life.
The artist would like viewers to profoundly feel her work, to establish a dialogue with what they see, what they know and what they live.
